Nearly everything has been impacted by Minnesota’s Stay at Home order, including state courtrooms. To reduce the spread of COVID-19, Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie Gildea released a new order issued March 20. Below is a summary of some of the changes made in the court during this time:
MN Courtrooms during COVID-19 pandemic
- No new jury trials will be granted in Minnesota courts before April 22
- Individuals that have been arrested on new charges or warrants will continue to see judges and receive their conditions of release set, however, most in-court appearances are being moved to a remote environment
- On April 1 the Minnesota Supreme Court held its first virtual oral arguments in a scheduled case through a video conference–it can be anticipated that cases scheduled soon will also take place via video conference
- Court hearings remain available for emergencies
